SRJC Linux Accounts Acceptable Use Policy Accessing the Servers Using Linux Basic Unix Commands Generating A Secure Password Application for Student Linux Account


Accessing the Servers Via SSH

(remote terminal access and file transferring)


For security reasons, we only allow encrypted connections to our staff and student servers. The preferred method is SSH. We do not allow unencrypted FTP or telnet access.

The hostname will always be "student.santarosa.edu" or "staff.santarosa.edu ".

File transfers:

Either "SFTP" or "SCP" work equally well.

Windows:
We are currently recommending WinSCP, from sourceforge.net which is free and easy to use.
The program used in the SRJC computer labs is SSH Secure Shell Client for Windows from ssh.com.
MacOS 7/8/9:
There is NiftyTelnet+SSH+SCP, from Columbia University which is free but a little hard to use.
There is also MacSSH from macssh.com, which is shareware but easier to use.
MacOS X:
Fugu, from the University of Michigan is a reasonably easy to use SFTP client for MacOS X.
Java (web-browser based):
We have MindTerm+SCP for Netscape and Internet Explorer. (MacOS users: unfortunately, this only works on MacOS X or newer; not on MacOS 9 or older.)

Terminal access:

Windows:
We have Putty SSH from greenend.org.uk
The program used in the SRJC computer labs is SSH Secure Shell Client for Windows from ssh.com.
MacOS 7/8/9:
NiftyTelnet+SSH+SCP, and MacSSH work.
MacOS X:
Open up a Terminal (under Applications find Utilities; Terminal should be in there) and type "ssh your-user-name@student.santarosa.edu" (i.e.: John Smith would type jsmith@student.santarosa.edu); you should already have the necessary software installed.
Java (web-browser based):
The Java solution above should work, as well as JavaSSH or Embedded Java SSH

There is a list of other options available at FreeSSH.org, and you can browse what we have available for download.


If you have any questions, please e-mail webmaster@santarosa.edu. Thank you.
